Reverse Grip Lat Pulldown With Bands
Area Targeted: Outer Back
Reverse Grip at Pull down with Tube Bands works your Latissimus Muscles (the ones that create width in your back) and mimics doing Chin ups. This exercise is amazing at building strength for pulling. After doing this exercise for a while you will be amazed at how much easier it is to pull yourself up a rope or anything else!
Anchor: Secure the band(s) to the door with the door anchor at top of the door.
Bands: Attach each end of the band(s) to a handle.
Body Positioning: Grip a handle with each hand and kneel down on one knee, 3 to 4 feet from the door while facing the door. Keep your back straight and head straight. Your arms should be pointed towards the anchor with palms facing up and hands about 6 inches apart.
Pull the handles down until your hands are below your chin. Return to the starting position (controlling the resistance). Repeat.
POINTS TO REMEMBER
1. Grip the handles loosely, just tight enough so that you will not let go.
2. Push your shoulder blades down as you pull the handles towards your chin.
